Running external php file from HTML page

Running external php file from HTML page

Running external php file from HTML page

Hi everyone
This is my "hello.php" file:

CODE -->

 	$myConnection = NEW MYSQLI('localhost','root','a','b');
 	echo 'Hello world';
When I load it thorough my browser typing at the address bar:
http://localhost/hello.php I get an "Hello world" declaration on my display.
Then I create an hello.HTML file with the following code:


 	<a href="hello.php">php</a>				

when I load "hello.html" and click "php" anchor, what I get at my display is the php file's source code.
I dont get the desired "Hello world".
Could anyone tell me why and what should I change to make the browser show "Hello" and not the source code?

RE: Running external php file from HTML page

How are you loading the HTML page?

Are you loading it as "http://localhost/hello.html" in a browser? Or are you just double clicking the html file in a folder?
